Living in the winters cold,
Trying to breathe under this heavy hold,
A man goes some time working all day long,
But then he gets laid off,he can't go on,
People all around are losing their jobs,
Every street filled with horrible sobs,
For the hardest wave had just hit from the jobless sea.
As he searches for a job, he finds some sense of comfort,
A close friend was providing him with support,
A place to stay for just a little longer,
Before he must move on to cease his hunger,
He can't accept handouts, he just has to do it on his own,
Applying for jobs at business to business, boy time sure has flown,
The man begins to wonder why, oh, why, would they not pick me,
He thanked his friend for the greatest comfort, and decided to leave,
Yet time still flew by with no success,
Now would be a good time for him to remember that girl's address.
So the long lost man set out to find his love,
As he was blankly staring at a fluttering dove,
He gets to thinking, why did I leave her, why did I move on,
"I didn't realize what I had, until she was gone,"
She's the only thing that's ever mattered,
In this mad world he's sick and battered,
With nowhere to go, and no one to talk to,
He can't help but cry, because of what this world has come to,
But what do you do when you have nothing left,
When all around you is hate and theft,
All you can do, is continue to do your best,
For everything else is just one of God's tests!
